How Good is Keith Jardine?
I noticed a little bit of talk that 110 is a must win for Jardine or the UFC might cut him. I personally don't think it is, I think the guy will be around a while, he's a great gate keeper.
But it got me thinking, just how good is the guy really? If you look at some of his wins there are some impressive ones, Liddell, Griffin even Vera and he was pretty competitive with Rampage. Than you look at his bad losses, I noticed that most of them have come inside a couple minutes, two inside a minute and a loss to Thiago Silva in 1:35.
Jardine is known for being a difficult guy to time and for heavy leg kicks that put guys off balance. In the bad losses in his career, the other guy never tried to time him, they just came forward and threw, both Silvas and Houston Alexander. Where the fights he's won or were competitive his opponent relied on timing, Liddell, Griffin and Jackson.
So I pose this question, does Keith Jardine actually have any talent? Or is it just his awkward movements and strikes that throw some guys off.
